The Toulmin Method
The basic requirements of the Toulmin method include:
1. Claim
2. Support
3. Warrant
The Claim is your thesis statement. Like other essays written in an academic setting, your
introductory paragraph introduces the reader to the topic by establishing the context. The Claim
will be the last 1-2 sentences in the introductory paragraph. The Claim is what you aim to prove
with your original argument and your research.
The Support in the Toulmin method is both your argument (using your rhetorical argument
skills) and the research conducted throughout this process. Your sources should include a variety
of sources ranging from peer reviewed journal articles to videos. Use your knowledge from the
previous essays completed this term to conduct your research by searching for current, reputable
The Annotated Bibliography
The Annotated Bibliography will operate as your Works Cited page with annotations (notes)
written beneath each bibliographic entry. The goal of each annotation is to, essentially, show
your knowledge of the source. Each annotation will include your developed and well-writing
discussion of the purpose of using the source, the connection to other sources, and the evaluation
of the source.
Use the following guidelines as you locate sources:
 Two peer reviewed journal articles focused to the claim
o Published in the last 5-years
o Consider these databases:
 Academic OneFile
 Academic Search Complete
 Two reputable popular sources found on the web
o Published in the last 12-months
o Consider these source types:
 Magazines (eg. Time)
 News websites (eg. Politico)
 Viewpoint essays in the Opposing Viewpoints database
 One quality video source
o Consider these resources:
 TED Talks
 Sources found on the Films on Demand database
Remember that all sources must be found in the Library’s databases or easy to locate on the web.
If your instructor cannot locate your source, it will not be counted. Abstracts do not count as
sources and should not be used as support for any academic essay.
 Ch. 18
 Refresh/reference:
o Ch. 13, 17, 29-24
 Ch. 23 details the Annotated Bibliography
